My Life As an Explorer: The Great Adventurer's Classic Memoir (Kodansha Globe)
My Life As an Explorer: The Great Adventurer's Classic Memoir (Kodansha Globe)
by Sven Anders Hedin, Alfhild Huebsch, Peter Hopkirk, Philip Turner
Book Description:
Introduction by Anthony Brandt.
Over the course of three decades in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Swedish geographer and explorer Sven Hedin traveled Central Asia¼s ancient Silk Road, along the way discovering lost cities, mapping uncharted rivers, and seeing more of “the roof of the world” than any European before him. Illustrated with 160 sketches by the author, this larger-than-life memoir captures the splendor of now-vanished civilizations, the excitement of unearthing ancient monuments, the chilling terror of snow-clogged mountain passes, the danger of infiltrating Tibet and of outwitting Torgut bandits, and the honor of close friendships with royalty from Peking to London.

A worldwide bestseller in the 1920s and named one of National Geographic Adventure magazine’s “100 Greatest Adventure Books of All Time,” the National Geographic Adventure Classics edition of My Life as an Explorer features an expedition map and exclusive reprints of articles Hedin wrote for National Geographic between 1897 and 1905.

Rome and the Counter-Reformation in Scandinavia
by Oskar Garstein
Book Description: The author tries to trace the complex processes that combined to form the policies of the Roman Curia in cooperation with Propaganda, the Jesuit Fathers, and at times with the Great Catholic Powers vis-a-vis Scandinavia during the reigns of Christian IV of Denmark and Norway and most especially of the warrior king, Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden and of his daughter Queen Christina. On the basis of the original authentic documents in deposits all over Europe, though most especially in the Vatican, Propaganda, and Jesuit archives, the author attempts to unfold the clandestine work of the Counter-Reformation orchestrated from Rome during the Thirty Years' War. Moreover, he provides a partly new study of the motives that brought about the reconciliation with Rome of Queen Christina of Sweden.
